Full of practical advise

The book is full of practical advise on how to communicate mindfully. It is incredibly accessible. I wish I had heard/read this book years ago.

I also enjoyed the way the book was narrated. It made the book easy to listen to.

Guideline for a loving long lasting relationship

It’s not only so beautifully written but also so so practical in our everyday lives, in our relationships.

The key is not only listening to the text but , really use it, apply it into our lives.

Together, we can do it :-)
